God this is beautiful. A slow-burning, end of summer jam that’s beyond what I would expect out of these two together. I love Bon Iver but don’t care much for Mr. Blake, but his work on this track just sends it to the next level.
Josh Ritter!! Wholeheartedly agree. So Runs The World Away is prob his second best album, behind Animal Years. ‘Folk Bloodbath,’ ‘Change of Time,’ ‘The Curse’ – fuck, almost every song on the album is pitch-perfect (except ‘Lark’ – woof, big misstep there).
It is strange – his lack of love on the interwebs. The Frames, Andrew Bird, Swell Season, even Stephen King heap praises on the guy, and people don’t even know who he is. (“wait – John Ritter does music?”)
But I see a long, fruitful career in the future for Mr. Ritter, so here is hoping he gets every good thing he deserves.
